LONDON (AP) -- Prosecutor Eric Maillaud says that the key to solving the case of a British family slain while on vacation in the Alps will be found in the U.K.
Speaking to reporters Thursday, Maillaud said that the family was killed near the French city of Annecy but that the case had its genesis in Britain.
Maillaud spoke from in front of Woking Police Station in the southern English county of Surrey, where Saad al-Hilli lived with his wife and their two daughters.
Al-Hilli, his wife and her mother were shot dead. A biker who may have stumbled upon the scene of the crime was also killed, while the couple's two daughters survived.
